A Very Southport Corridor Christmas

It’s that time of year to dust off the ladders –  and hang the lights! A very Southport Corridor Christmas around the neighborhood this year. It’s great to see – especially after a long 20 months of the pandemic.

Smells like the weekend.. 👊🍻

The Butcher’s Tap is now open, and here is a look at their new menu

The Butcher’s Tap is now open, and here is a look at their new menu.  Think it will do better on Southport then Messner’s/WheelHouse Wrigley did?

“The new bar is now open and called The Butcher’s Tap, a nod to the butcher shop that opened in 1932 at the same location at 3553 N. Southport Ave. Ownership said they’ve completed 95 percent of the interior renovation which is expected to be complete in early December. Workers gutted the Wheel House space, which opened in 2012 after replacing Messner’s Bar and Grill. Ownership lauded changes including rolling glass garage door windows and a new audio and video system and 25 televisions.”

More information on The Butcher’s Tap can be read here from Eater Chicago.

Wheelhouse Wrigley re-branding as The Butcher’s Tap in August

Re-branding is taking place once again and the new space will be called The Butcher’s Tap as a “Farm to Table” restaurant and craft beer concept.  According to the City of Chicago’s business permit website, “The Butcher’s Tap” was approved in February of 2014.

Look for an August 2014 opening.
